Allows you to enter the text that you want to find. The entry can be up to 255 characters. Note that the search is case-sensitive.

Replace With

Use caution when replacing strings using this utility. Any occurrences of the specified string will be replaced, including partial strings. For instance, if you replaced "Customer" with "Client", the field name Customer_Number would become Client_Number. You may want to search for the specified string and view the status report first. This will allow you to see which items will be replaced before you perform the replace operation.
